Hello, I was just looking at some Nepenthes for sale on a website and saw this plant listed as Nepenthes anamensis, the photo shows a fat, squat, small,and speckled red pitcher. I looked it up but could not find any info about the plant, anyone ever heard of this species?
Depending on who you listen to, N. anamensis is either a synonym of N. smilesii for certain plants in the Cambodia/Laos/Thailand region, or a very closely related species. I'd suggest getting ahold of Francois Mey for details about it, he's worked a lot with the Indochinese species.
Back in the 80's lots of plants were sold by the infamous, but now defunct, Peter Paul's Nursery under the name Nepenthes anamensis. It was an easy to grow and propagate plant, but turned out to be just a form of Nepenthes mirabilis. It's possible that's what the plant this person is selling is.
This large database of global monographic treatments was supplied to The Plant List as two separate data sets which were treated slightly differently:
Peer reviewed treatments are available online for 151 Seed Plant families (view published families). WCSP gives information on the accepted scientific names and synonyms of selected plant families. It includes more than 320,000 names and allows the user to search for all the scientific names of a particular plant, or the areas of the world in which it grows (distribution). The data set counts upon the collaboration over 16 years of 132 specialists from 25 countries who have contributed data or acted as reviewers. WCSP (in review)
In addition to the published family checklists the World Checklist database contains data for many other families which have either been completed and await review by specialists or are still being compiled. The Plant List also incorporates these unpublished data which include more than 290,000 additional names.
